UNCC Chairman, Sam Okello, said, “As leaders in this sector, we need to look for new strategic ideas that will propel the activities of the creative sector. UG Connect Concert is one of those ideas.”
Next Media Services Board Member, Isaac Rucci, also highlighted the fact that the plan for the concept is all-inclusive.
“No body is going to be left behind with this. Expect high energy, world class entertainment,” Rucci said.
